Pair Red Dawn _ Guidance

Do “Red Dawn” stars Chris Hemsworth, Josh Peck and Josh Hutcherson have the chops to defeat Billy Crystal, Bette Midler and Marisa Tomei, the powerhouse leads in “Parental Guidance,” in this week’s Fabulous Four round of April Movie Madness?

According to those who’ve participated so far in our survey, the answer is a resounding “Yes.” Additionally, of the four remaining films, “Parental Guidance” is the least-predicted title to win the championship round, with only ONE vote!

Unless more votes roll in for the comedy before midnight Monday, a surprise championship victory for “Parental Guidance” would mean up to 24 free VOD movies for the sole voter who has predicted it.  To get in on the action, take our Movie Madness survey. (See official rules.)
